Well it finally happened last month. After he'd shot this cow, he rolled it over onto it's left side, only to do a double-take and stop in amazement at the sight of this perfect heart! At first he thought someone was having a joke on him, but after really close inspection and plucking a few hairs, he was left in no doubt it was for real!
He was so flabbergasted he went and got his camera to record this perfect heart on the hide for posterity.
All I can tell you is, if that was my cow it would have been a pet and a major player at shows! But these ranchers can't afford to be sentimental I guess.
